The Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain (JGSGB) has announced the relocation of its extensive library from The Jewish Museum London to the Westminster Synagogue.
The library, a valuable resource for those interested in Jewish genealogy, has found a new home at Westminster Synagogue at Kent House in Knightsbridge, London.
Leigh Dworkin, JGSGB chairman, said: ‘Westminster Synagogue have been incredibly warm and welcoming in this transition. We are pleased to make a new home in Kent House and look forward to seeing members and the public make full use of our new space early next year.’
The Synagogue building also hosts the Memorial Scrolls Trust. The small and internationally recognised MST museum displays 150 scrolls and 500 binders and tells the story of how the scrolls were saved from further destruction under the Communists having survived the Holocaust.
After settling in, the JGSGB library will open for member use in January 2024, and for public users in March 2024, both by appointment only. Find out more at the society's website.
